Tulip glass (Tulpanglas), 1957

Henry Karlsson, the master glassblower at Orrefors, described the remarkably thin-stemmed Tulip vases as “the most difficult...and most exciting thing I ever did.” Sizes and shapes varied, but the tendency was toward ever more exaggerated stem length. Production of the series continued until 1981.
